HAVE A SCROLL

It's Been a Hot Minute...

I AM WELL AWARE THAT IT HAS BEEN AWHILE. AND THAT’S BECAUSE I HAD TO TAKE A RATHER LARGE SOCIAL MEDIA BREAK AT THE END OF 2018… LETS CALL IT A DIGITAL CLEANSE AS THAT SOUNDS A LITTLE SEXIER.

TRUTH IS I WAS SO DEMOTIVATED BY WHAT I WAS SEEING AND WHAT I WAS EXPERIENCING IN THIS INDUSTRY. FOR STARTERS EVERY TIME I OPENED MY PHONE, EVERYTHING I WAS SEEING WAS THE BLOODY SAME. SAME OUTFITS, SAME PHOTO LOCATIONS, SAME HAIR, SAME EYELASHES, SAME SAME SAME. WHERE THE HELL WAS THE INDIVIDUALITY? AND THE WORST PART WAS THAT I STARTED TO SEE MY STYLE AND AESTHETIC SLOWLY BLEND IN TO ALL OF THIS.

WHICH LET ME TELL YOU THERE IS NO WORSE REALISATION.

I ALWAYS LOVED THAT MY STYLE WAS BOLD, ECCENTRIC, PLAYFUL YET AT THE SAME TIME FEMININE AND ROMANTIC. LOVED THAT I FOUND BRANDS THAT MOST PEOPLE WEREN’T WEARING. AND THEN REALISED I NEEDED TO GET BACK TO THAT. GET BACK TO BLOGGING BUT SHARING THE THINGS THAT I TRULY LOVE WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE TRENDING, WHICH MAY NOT BE LINKABLE ON LIKETOKNOWIT, WHICH MAY NOT BE SOLD AT MAJOR STOCKISTS OR PAIRED IN A OBVIOUS WAY…BUT THAT IS WHAT I WAS ALWAYS KNOWN FOR. THAT WAS THE LANI TOUCH.

ONLY TO THEN COME ACROSS THE MOST PERFECT QUOTe to describe this period that i was experiencing…

“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.”

-Alice Walker

so i am back, and couldn’t be happier to be sharing the things i love. clothes, beauty, and the occasional travels. have even considered possibly adding a food/recipes section as i love nothing more than sharing our recipes... and also wanted to say a massive thank you for all those who did reach out to me as it only pushed me to get back sooner x
